4 hours of Unity tutorials on youtube. Only I have to stop the video and make sure I'm doing stuff correctly, so it takes much longer than 4 hours.

You're supposed to mix it in with sweet tea.

...well, I'm not trying to be an attention getter but I just don't really have any where else I can really just say whatever and just get this off my chest. But my dog died a few days ago, just woke up and she was gone. I think it might have been neurological or a tumor. I don't know. It just really sucks. Best dog I've ever had even though it was a short amount of time. On top of that Murphy's law just won't stop. I haven't had this amount of s***** luck in a while but maybe soon it will pass. Every thing that can go wrong has gone wrong in this past week. I hate everything right now. I've decided to be a hermit for now until I stop getting the wrath of Murphy

...sorry for the rant, I feel slightly better now.

I've definitely had times like that. Sorry about the pup. I know it's especially tough when it happens so suddenly.

Waiting on repair technician (have a cable jack upstairs that isn't getting a signal) and about to go make a second pot of coffee.
Also waiting on IT to call and tell me if their plans worked or we're switching over to Plan B.

I'm sorry about your dog, Fuzzy.

StupidlyBrave 09-29-13 10:59 AM

I am sorry to hear of your loss, Fuzzy. That was an English Bull Terrier?

Didn't see this earlier......
I'm sorry you're dealing with that......my condolences.

BenzFanatic 09-30-13 09:48 AM

Feeling like death. Been fighting something for several days now... About to head to the doc. On the bright side, I can get to the doctor without my car's brakes squealing because I finally got my brakes done and upgraded to ceramic stuff.

jsharr 09-30-13 10:07 AM

Praying for you Fuzz. Hope things get better. I know the pain of losing a dear canine friend.

ModoVincere 09-30-13 11:35 AM

I'm having a bad day.....

jsharr 09-30-13 11:57 AM

Sorry MV.

CbadRider 09-30-13 01:55 PM

I'm sorry about your dog, Fuzzy.

MV, I hope your day gets better.

ModoVincere 09-30-13 07:15 PM

Let's see....today started out with a 1 hour and 20 minute commute to drive a whopping 7 freaking miles! No accidents, no breakdowns...nothing... WTF?!
Then I get to work to find the data that I was promised is still missing. To make matters worse, the people working the issue did not listen to what I said...I had to have a field called transactionDate....they coded the sql so that 9/26 defaulted to every ****ing line....21M lines of data. Basically makes their effort useless and wasted my entire day. From there, I now have a ulcer on my lip that I have managed to bite the living hell out of at least 5 times today, drawing blood twice.
Now, I just got off another freaking conference call with the IT idiots where once again, I had to explain that this data goes to the corporate VP's and President, that I can't use it the way it was pulled, and if they load it the way they pulled it, they will **** up the entire system. Once again, I had to explain that I need the transactionDate field, and it has to represent the origination date of the transaction.

I'm ready to ****ing kill someone or something.....the dog just left the room....she's scared right now.
God I'm pissed at today.

Allen 09-30-13 07:22 PM

Sorry man.

Oh and MV, may I suggest a fish dance to help your day go faster.

Sounds like someone didn't use 2-way communication technique. I never give critical instructions without asking them to tell me what they understand the task to be.

I am sorry to hear that things are going badly, particularly about your dog.

Last July I brought a kitten home that had great personality and lots of energy, even for a kitten. Everyone in the family was instantly in love with him and though I don't usually bond with the critters in the house this one seemed to favor me and slept on top of me each night. At about three months old he just stop growing and then started getting weak. The vet said the best they could tell he had a brain tumor and there was nothing they could do. My son took it particularly hard and a year later keeps the towel that we used to make him a bed.

When I have periods of time in which it seems that everything is going badly, I tend to be a hermit to minimize the emotional cost to me and to others.

I hope things get better for you soon.

Sounds wrong.....I even gave them a detailed list of the fields to pull and the reasons why the fields are needed.
